Superstar guitarist and unstoppable force of nature, “Hurricane” Nita Strauss, has unleashed her brand new single, “Dead Inside”, her first new music since the release of her critically acclaimed debut solo album Controlled Chaos in 2018.

“Dead Inside” features her first-ever solo collaboration with a vocalist and not just any vocalist, none other than David Draiman, frontman of Grammy-nominated rock icons, Disturbed. Check out the official “Dead Inside” video here:

Speaking on their history-making collaboration, Nita Strauss shares, “This is my first time releasing my own music with a vocalist, and I am so honoured to take this step alongside a legend like David Draiman. David’s voice and powerful lyrics took this song to a level I could never have imagined! And we are so excited to unleash this song on the world.”

David Draiman adds, “Serendipity can be really cool. We’ve been friends for years. Nita sent me the track… I didn’t have time to work on it right away… then in literally a couple of days, while killing time in Santa Monica, the whole thing just came together. Incredibly proud of how it turned out and honoured to be a part of it.”

Nita has been hard at work on her second solo studio album. More news to come on that soon and also recently announced that she will hit the road at the end of the year for her Winter Wasteland 2021 headline tour. The US trek kicks off in New Orleans, LA on November 10th and hits a further 28 cities across North America. Nita returns to the UK in May 2022 with Alice Cooper for arena dates with The Cult. Tickets for all dates are on sale now.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
